The article reports on the controversy surrounding the United States' international tax system and the implication for multinational corporations. Factors contributing to the controversy include action taken by the European Union to put tariffs on American goods if the U.S. does not comply with a ruling by the World Trade Organization, which eliminated a tax subsidy that gave U.S. exports a competitive advantage. Foreign sales corporations, corporate inversions and tax avoidance, the U.S. government's stance on cross-border transactions, legislative bills, and extraterritorial income tax rules are mentioned.
